Mr P’s and I are Back Up & Running at Last!
Yes we are finally back out competing after all this time. 3 weeks after giving birth to our gorgeous second child Benjamin Lewis, we headed off to Hartpury CDI 3* on 14 July 2010. We must be mad, insane or both as we headed off to the competition with 2 horses, 2 children under 5 and the two of us in a 7.5 ton wagon. You would expect it to be hell on wheels but it wasn’t. We managed to cope (with the kind help of our inlaws). We managed to survive the GP as Mr P was a star and just took me round. We finished on a score of 67.9% which put is into 4th place. We decided to opt to pay safe with the GPS instead of the Kur as Mr P and I had not been in a 60m school for 4 months, let alone have a clue what to do with our music! We managed to compete the GPS with as few errors as possible and finished 1st with 69.5%, which was a huge surprise to all of us!
With some confidence restored, we are about to head off to Hickstead CDI on 28 July 2010. However, the line up for this show is huge (Edward Gal for starters!)…so we are not holding our breath. No serious placings are planned for us at this show. We are just going to have fun and enjoy ourselves. We will let you know how we get on.
